Telarus Releases GeoSign: Business Cable Paperwork Generation Platform

Telecom master agent creates a software platform for creating business cable service request forms online.

SANDY, UT - Telarus, Inc., premier telecom master agent and patent holder of real-time carrier quotes, today announced the launch of GeoSigntm, an enhanced qualification and customer paperwork generation platform that is compatible with all cable company business coax offerings. The new technology paves the way for independent agents partnered with Telarus to check for cable availability, configure a custom service package for their client, and to generate paperwork in real-time.

"Creating a common platform on which all of the cable companies can provide automated pre-qualification and customer signature-ready paperwork for their channels was a huge task," commented Adam Edwards, president of Telarus, Inc. "GeoSigntm will provide unique value to the growing number of partners looking to add the Cables to their portfolio and also those that are tired of having to do the work manually through their current distributors."

The original code base for GeoSign(tm) got its start in early 2011, when Telarus, Inc. was selected for the initial rollout of the national Comcast Business Class Solution Provider program. GeoSigntmis currently compatible with Comcast Business Class and is in beta with Time Warner Cable Business Class.

"GeoSigntm is a must-have for partners who do coax business with the cable companies," added Andrew Morgan, VP of Operations and chief architect of GeoSign(tm). "With the average coax business broadband and/or voice order coming in around $200/month, channel partners just don't have the time to wait for serviceability to come back or to fill out 4 pages of paperwork, by hand, for their customers each and every time. This transactional business has to be efficient to be profitable for everybody involved in these sales."

GeoSigntm is the latest software product released by Telarus, Inc. Previous telecom-related software tools include GeoQuotetm - which recently generated its 1,000,000th quote, and GeoScantm - which partners use to find general carrier availability for any address in the United States. Telarus, Inc. received a patent for GeoQuotetm in 2009 and is the only distributor in its space to write and patent its own software.

"We believe GeoSigntm is critical to the long-term viability of coax-based products with independent sales agents," commented Patrick Oborn, VP of Business Development for Telarus. "Having an industry standard that all cable companies can leverage to grow their partner base is key to the future growth and sustainability of their Channels. With the average fallout rate of 25% and an average monthly bill of around $200, partners do not have much tolerance for delay, headache, or run-around. GeoSigntm saves them time and ensures the forms are filled out correctly, saving time on the front end as well as the back."

GeoSigntm, GeoQuote tm, and GeoScantm are all available online through the Telarus Partner Portal located at http://agent.telarus.com.
